It is possible to fix the problem by adding a machine-recognizable
license notice for the appropriate license at the top of the pertinent
pages, plus a source code pointer for each page.  See for

The source pointers are needed because these pages contain compiled
code.  (More precisely, minified -- but that is a kind of
compilation.)  It is ok to use minified code, but it needs to come
with the corresponding source code.

The term "MIT license" is ambiguous -- it stands for either the X11
license or the Expat license.  You can tell which by looking at the
actual license text in the source and comparing with those two entries

The license notice should say which specific license.
